On January 20, the Creative Coalition Inaugural Ball dinner was held at Cha, the new restaurant in The Donovan House of Thompson Hotels.
The hotel and restaurant were filled with A-listers including Actors Matthew Modine, Alan Cumming, Alfre Woodard, Wendie Malick, Gloria Reuben, Dana Delaney of television's “Desperate Housewives,” actor Josh Lucas, Susan Sarandon, Spike Lee, Rachel Leigh Cook and Tim Robbins.
The Donovan House packed in some 300 celebs and elected officials for the dinner before they headed over to the $10,000/ticket Creative Coalition Inaugural Ball. Cha will open its door to the public in March 2009.
If only the new administration can do for the rest of the country what the inauguration has done for D.C.
